5 Steps To Clean Duvets
It’s recommended that we change and wash our bedsheets at least once a month, but did you know that your duvet needs care as well? Here are five steps to a cleaner duvet with very little hassle!
Check the cleaning label
This step is very important, as it tells you how you’re going to clean your duvet. Some are washer-safe, and that means you’ll be able to throw them into the washing machine without trouble; however, other feather quilts might need to be dry cleaned, so make sure you know which it is so you don’t end up ruining your quilt!
Use the right machine
It’s important to choose a machine that can accommodate your duvet and its size. A machine that can fit up to 10 kgs is ideal. Fold up the duvet to get it to fit into the drum.
Detergent and settings
Put the duvet into the washing machine and set it to a delicate cycle. Make sure you use just enough detergent, as too much will prevent a thorough washing. Also check the cleaning label for recommended washing temperature.
Drying the duvet
If your duvet can be put in the dryer, do so on low heat with a couple of tennis balls, which will help it to dry faster. A dry towel also does the trick! Otherwise, sun-dry them to kill bacteria!
